Cannibal Corpse Guitarist Released From Jail on $50,000 Bond
Cannibal Corpse guitarist Pat O'Brien has been released from jail following his arrest on Monday, Dec. 10. We confirmed the news with Hillsborough County Sheriff's Department of Public Affairs. He was released this past Friday (Dec. 14) at 21:01 on a $50,000 bond.
WFLA reported that it took firefighters over an hour to quell the blaze that had engulfed O'Brien's home due to ammunition inside continually detonating. While the house was on fire, the guitarist broke into a nearby neighbor's house and refused to leave, eventually pushing a women over and assaulting a police officer. He was then subdued with a taser.
O'Brien was officially charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and assault and aggravated assault on a police officer. He appeared in front of a Florida judge in a suicide vest on Dec. 11.
Cannibal Corpse's record label, Metal Blade, has no comment on the matters. Just last week it was announced that the band would be featured alongside Lamb of God and Amon Amarth as support on Slayer's 2019 North American leg of their ongoing farewell tour. There has been no word of whether this will affect their presence on the trek.
